VAGRANCY AND LABOR.
Undoubtedly a great wrung is
done the country in permitting
thousands of Chinese to live an idle
and vagrant life, while heavy ex
pense is incurred to bring fres.li
supplies of labor periodically into
the kingdom. Compel all the vag
rants to go to work, is the advice
we have repeatedly given, and that
is what the bulk of respectable peo
ple will say. A leading planting
agent said not long ago to the writer
that he had not a dozen shipped men
employed, but, whenever a large
amount of labor was required on his
plantations, he went into Chinatown
and got as many men as he wanted,
discharging them whenever the spe
cial occasion for their services was
past. Why cannot other planters
do likewise when in straits for help,
and the Government help them by
the operation of the Vagrant Act?
If the Chinese are here to work,
then make them work if not on the
plantations, on the public roads.
DOUBLE STANDARD TROUBLE.
The National Broadway Bank, of
New York, has lcfuscd to furnish
its allotment of $80, 000 of the U,
000.000 gold which tho Associated
Banks agreed to loan the United
States Treasurer in exchange for
subsidiary silver coin. It is held
by the management of this bank
that the Government had not asked
the banks of New York to exchange
0,000,000 of their gold for the same
amount of silver worth about 85,
000,000, and that the other banks
had made the exchange without the
authority of their directors and
stockholders. A member of the
Clearing House Committee said, in
reference to the action of the Broad
way Bank, that it, might be true the
banks had no right to make the
exchange, but since 18G1 they had
done many things that were not
strictly according to the letter of
the law. Other bankers hold that
the managers of the Broadway Bank
arc level-headed in their decision
and acting strictly in accordance
with the law. The United States
evidently is finding its double metal
standard a very dillicult thing to
work. Judging by the utterances
of those trying to subvert the Haw
aiian gold standard law, wc should
expect to hear of nothing but the
smoothest sailing of the bi-metallic
policy of our neighbors.
"There has been an active de
mand in London for the new Egyp
tian securities." That is the way
English capitalists accumulate fu
ture occasions for war.
It is reported, by last mail, that
the Mexican loan of $100,000,000
has been negotiated in England.
Any country would seem to be able
to obtain money to meet its neces
sities but Hawaii.
The sentiments of a business man,
regarding preventive measures
against cholera, given in our local
columns to-day, arc respectfully
commended to tho attention of the
President of the Board of Health.
It may be easy for anybody to say
that the city is not badly off for
cleansing, but only a brief tour
through back lanes in some quarters
is needed to prove the contrary.
Tho Boston Joumul, speaking of
the necessarily high style of farm-
ing required ou the old soil of New
England, recommends farmers in
that country to give more attention
to the improvement of stock. This
advice is good for almost any coun
try. Tt does not pay to keep poor
stock, that consumes as much food
and gives us much trouble in its care
as good stock. Of course, the latter
is the more expensive at the start,
but better have a less number to
begin with, and havp them of a class
yielding the largest possible return
for the outlay.
One of the most notable incidents
in connection with the death of Clcn
eial Grant was the memorial service
held in 'Westminster Abbey on Aug.
Itli. Dean Karrar preached from
Acts iii.. ;ifi, and referred, in be
ginning his discourse, to the fact
that eight years had not passed since
the late Dean Stanley, whom Ameri
cans .so loved and honored, was
walking around that Abbey with
General Grant, explaining its wealth
of great memorials. Neither of
them had nearly attained the allotted
span of human life. The speaker
If the men who knew liim in Ga

unambitious, had said, if anyone
had predicted, that he would be
come twice President and one of the
foremost men of the day, the pro
phecy would have seemed extrava
gantly ridiculous. But such careers
are the glory of the American conti
nent; they show that the people
have a sovereign insight into intrin
VIEWING THE RANCHES
(J'Jdilorial Correspondence of the
Monday, August 17th.
This morning, there was mounting
in hot haste for Honolulu. Not that
any one really desired to get away
from Kahnku, with its genial hospi
tality and its panoramic views of
land and water ; but the attractions
of home, the cares of business, and
the hankering after the vain and
illusive excitements of the sanctum
convinced every man that the duty
lying nearest to him is manifestly
to get to Honolulu. A detour through
and over some of the rugged spurs
of the mountains spreads out in one
view the beautiful ocean-fringed
plains referred to in yesterday's let
ter. A short halt is made for a near
inspection of Malaekahana, which,
with the aid of its exciting legend,
a vivid imagination might convert
into a text for a long series of phi
losophical and sentimental reflec
tions. But getting back to Hono
lulu, and not reflecting, is the order
of the da, this time. The settle
ment of Laie is a pretty spot occu
pied by a body of Mormons. A
cluster of snug cottages, and a few
cultivated plots, with a church and
school house, recall to mind that this
island is inhabited by a few of the
"lesser barons" of landed proprie
torship. Of course, it would be
very much better if these home
steads were occupied by citizens of
a creed more suggestive of solid
theological acquirements; but be
they Mormons or Tartars, there is a
refreshing variety in, the simple fact
of finding this much of the country
appropriated to the sole use and
service of a section of the human
family. L'or the next ten miles or
so, sundry habitations dot the road
side at long intervals. Punaluu
boasts of a Chinaman's store, heavily
stocked, and where we are told that
buyers can be suited as well as in
Honolulu. It is the first telephone
station after leaving Waialua. The
instrument is kindly placed at the
disposal of the homeward bound
Ilonoluluans, who, of course, create
a big sensation in the city when
their expected arrival, this very day,
is signalled. And no wonder, for
has not the capital of the kingdom
been deprived, for a whole week, of
the presence of some of its most in
dispensable residents? Another four
or live miles with the mountains on
the one hand and the ocean on the
other, and if the traveler is of a
poetic turn, the air of Kahuna will
surely be the breath of inspiration,
and the more so, if grand mountain
scenery contributes anything of fuel
for the Muse's llaino. Kahuna is,
like Laie, known as "a Mormon
settlement." Not much poetry in
that fact, but there is practical value
in the existence of the community,
for it indicates that whero people
take possession of these lands to
live on, they can do it. The poetry
of Ivahana, however, is in its situa
tion. The villago stands at the head
of a low valley in an almost semi
circular mountain ridge, the valley
opening and widening as it recedes
seaward. Nestling in the shadow
of the ridge, ulthough the hour is
well advanced towards noon, none
of these roofs have, as yet, been
touched by tho rays of the morning
sun. For milo after mile, the road
now continues to wind along the
bases of high precipitous rock built
mountains, or runs close along the
sea beach. The overshadowing piles
look down from under their cold
haggard brows in the same silent,
solemn majesty as they did upon
every wayfarer who has passed this
way for a thousand years. The
ocean tide rolls its slow, measured
dirges on the shore as it did on the
morning of that day when the sea
and the dry land were separated.
An hour's rest on the verandahs
and under the trees of Justice
Judd's ranch at Kualoa adds an
other to the many scenes of pictur
esque beauty on view on this part
of the island. The house is pret
tily located at the base of a high
wall of mountain, and is approached
from the main road through a grove
of magnificent algarobas. The
ocean is near enough and far enough
away to lend enchantment to the
view by throwing the lustre of its
glossy surface into line contrast
with the blurry outlines of tlic islets,
spurs and promontories that fill the
horizon far and near. In the offing,
Mokolii rises in glum solitude, .1
conic castellated home for the birds
of the air.
After leaving here, asmartiide
over splendid roads and through a
very wet shower, brings the party
up on the premises of the Ahuimanu
ranch dairy. The operations of the
dairy arc carried on in a most" sys
tematic and efficient style. The
latest appliances for working a large
dairy are in use. About 120 cows
are milked here every day. Raised
Humes conduct water a considerable
distance into the barn. One of
these conduits carries power to a
twelve foot water wheel, which runs
the hay and feed cutter on the upper
floor. Another smaller conduit
brings water into the cow house on
the ground flat. There is a full
supply of hose from which water
can be played on any part of the
building in case of fire ; and is used
in washing the cattle floors which
undergo a thorough scouring every
day. No manure is allowed to ac
cumulate in or about the barn. It
is all removed to a distance, whence,
after a few days, it is taken away
and spread over the land. The
most noticeable feature of the dairy
barn is its perfect cleanliness and
the absence of offensive ellluvia.
Among the stock, there is a large
proportion of Jerseys, some IIol
steins and other breeds of superior
butter making qualities. An al
most perpendicular wall of moun
tains rises behind the ranch house,
to a height of probably 1,200 feet.
Deeply furrowed at regular dis
tances, from the summit to the base,
this great wall of rock presents a
very grand and picturesque appear
ance. The view is further enhanced
by springs gushing from tlic rocks
at different points in the side, and
falling like beautiful tasselated
silver threads down the furrows of
the mountain's face.
The Messrs. Lowell (brothers)
cordially dispense hospitality to the
rain soaked and rain avoiding ex
cursionists. What delicious Jerse'
butter! Really if such butter were
in common use instead of the mix
tures sometimes inflicted on the
wretched inmates of some asylums
for the homeless, the old phrase
"bread and butter" would soon be
transposed into "butter and bread."
This estimate of the superiority of
the Ahuimanu Jersey butter maj' be
verified any day at the store of the
Pacific Hardware Company. After
the rain pour has ceased, an hour's
ride over rough and slippery moun
tain trails brings the homebound
cavalcade to the road, and hasten
ing by the Kaneohc plantations,
horses and riders are soon toiling up
the stone steps of the great winding
staircase of the Nuuanu Pali. Up
the sinuous windings of a mile of
rough stone steps, the atmosphere
close and hot as a furnace, and irri
gated at every step by the spray
falling from the cloud capped pin
nacles overhead, is it any wonder
that on reaching the summit, the
roofs and palm trees of Honolulu
were to the explorationists what the
roofs of Jerusalem were to the
armies of Cumr de Lion? Another
hour, and wo are in Chinatown,
and one of the finest excursions that
ever fell to the lot of editor, re
porter or philosopher is at an end.
